Yesterday, Jeremy and Tracy Helton welcomed their first child into the world, Taylor Anne. We are always excited when a member of gym family has a new addition. Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him. Psalm 127:3. Some translations use the word heritage instead of gift. That means that they are not ours but a gift to us. We would not have if the Lord did not bless us with them. Do we take the time to pray for our children and thank God for them. We get so wrapped up in getting them to school, making sure their every need is met but we often fail to focus on their most important need and that is teaching them about the Lord. Treat them as a gift and never take them for granted.
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” Genesis 1:28
